Basa, 2021, Telmo Rodríguez, Rueda
Only 2 left in stock
Pale, lemon, bright, Basa is bone-dry, mid-weight, and shows distinct earthy, herbal complexity. Verdejo-which accounts for 90 % of the blend- is sometimes spoken of as Spain’s answer to sauvignon blanc but it is more restrained with flavours of lemon peel and green peach and dry zesty finish.
Telmo Rodríguez and Pablo Eguzkiza have been friends and business partners in crime for over three decades, starting with Pablo working at Telmo’s family’s Riojan winery Remelluri.
Since the founding of their own company in 1992 (under Telmo’s name but they are equal partners) they have worked together to challenge and change perceptions of Spanish wine on the international stage, seeking out individual plots and vineyards across Spain.
